How Are You Using Your Words?



How are you using your words?

Whether you live by Biblical truths, subscribe to universal laws, or believe in spiritual principles, your words have power!

No matter your age, career stage, wage, or level of outrage, your words have power!

AFFIRM: My Words Have Power

Are you using your words to emphasize your fears or reinforce your faith?

Are you using your words to complain about your problems or talk through the solutions?

Are you using your words to accept defeat or claim victory?

Are you using your words to destroy your confidence or empower yourself?

Are you using your words to highlight your deficits or strengthen your strengths?

Use your words to speak life into and over your life!

Be careful how you speak to yourself because you’re listening.

Every word expressed has the power to influence and alter our worlds.

How you speak to yourself matters. Your inner dialogue is just as important as your verbal self-talk.

Develop strategies to tame your tongue and control your inner critic.

Your words can create an environment of positive energy at this very moment.

Whether your words are spoken or written, they have the power to support, heal, inspire, encourage, and transform.

Whether your words are written or spoken, they have the power to hinder, wound, isolate, and destroy.

Why am I sharing this with you today?

Because I am in the business of uplifting humanity.

Like flowers, humans don’t bloom in harsh, dry dirt. Like flowers, humans need nutrient-rich soil, water, sunlight, and care to blossom – our words can provide that.

Your words have power – use them wisely.
